Silent Hall of Fame has created a Silent Gems Collection of rare and for the first time available films with our stars, as well as other silent masterpieces. These are high quality films that are hard to find anywhere else. Please use the link below to see the Silent Gems Collection of rare films on DVD.
We have included this film in our program to illustrate the work and contributions of Joe Roberts, a star of Silent
Hall of Fame.
"Little Lord Fauntleroy" is a nice old-fashioned comedy-drama, starring Mary Pickford in a double role. Joe Roberts makes a cameo appearance as Buzz Saw Brannigan, an ex-champion and the idol of the neighborhood.
A boy named Cedric (played by Mary Pickford) lives with his widowed mother (also played by Mary Pickford). By a trick of circumstance he becomes the legal heir to an English nobleman. Cedric meets his grumpy old grandfather, who lives in a big cold castle and is estranged to him and his mother. Will Cedric's spirit of youth be able to melt the old man's heart and make him reconsider his life priorities?

Silent Hall of Fame is the only place where we actively work to bring back from oblivion the names and legacy of formerly illustrious silent movie stars, which have made a major contribution to the industry and the world but do not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
We also fight for your right, the right of the public, to see silent masterpieces that have been kept in hidden vaults for far too long. Our website streams for free one such masterpiece that has not been seen in 85 years and is not available anywhere else.
Please visit our website to watch quality silent films absolutely free and to support the legacy of silent movie stars with your tax deductible contribution.
Please spread the word about Silent Hall of Fame and help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.
